has taken a step towards speeding up the adoption of road safety technologies by partnering with a coalition of private sector companies. The deal with Together for Safer Roads (TSR) will see them collaborating as part of TSR’s Global Entrepreneur Program (GEP) to support early-stage firms with imaginative ideas.
“We will support platforms that save lives and improve mobility for all roadway users, including drivers, pedestrians and cyclists,” said Shailen Bhatt, president and CEO of ITS America.
The organisations want to find companies creating “new, safer road usage patterns and options, improving the safety outcomes of commercial drivers and operators, or focusing on putting people and their road safety vulnerabilities at the heart of product design”.
Applicants for the GEP go to www.togetherforsaferroads.org/safer-road-tech, will be selected by representatives from TSR, ITS America and the start-up community.
“Globally, one size doesn’t fit all. That is especially true for today’s transportation systems with the vision of zero deaths on the world’s roads,” said David Braunstein, president of TSR. “We look forward to combining our collective expertise to foster innovation that improves the health and safety for all.”
